. >> this week news broke that treasury secretary tim geithner is going to leave possibly by the end of the month, which means ahead of all of the debt ceiling talks. do you think that would hurt the economy if he's not there to be the one to help sort of, i don't know, keep everything on balance? >> i do worry a little bit about this. there's no clear person who would have been named if he's leaving at the end of the month. the name tossed around most commonly is jack lew. but he's not a clear candidate yet at least. secretary geithner has been very instrumental in talking to the congress for the last couple years about the budget and about the debt ceiling. he was very involved in 2011. he's obviously been very involved the last couple of months. if he leaves, i think we could -- it really depends who takes over for him. but i think we're -- i think we're looking at a lot of big issues to face before march and so it's really going to come down to who that person is that takes over. >> yeah, certainly. have to talk a little bit of football because we always talk about the commercials and t

instruction from treasury secretary tim geithner on his way out. maybe he will give us a date. as we know, washington doesn't do anything without a firm deadline. and even sometimes when we have a firm deadline, we don't see any action. we have the spending bills about to expire that have to be renewed to keep washington running. >> okay. lots to look ahead to, amie and rachel, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> thank you so much. >>> do you think video game violence contributes to violent acts? talk to me on twitter. i'll get to tweets and facebook notices throughout the day. >>> more front page politics, the mayor of newark, new jersey, is explaining how he has evolved to his support of the lgbt community. an op-ed has been republished. he describes the process in a new interview, including how he moved beyond so-called tolerance. >> tolerance in and of itself is an admission that this is not love, not an embrace, not a celebration of diversity. i'm really tolerating you. i'm the first mayor in newark's history to raise the pride flag. formed new jersey's first commission on lgbtq

he sends up jack lew, that will be a tough nomination. >> chip, what do you think? tim geithner stepping down. how do you think it's going to impact? do you think, either of you, if the president were to ask tim geithner to stick around at least through that, like, listen, friend, can you extend this another six weeks because i don't want to go through a nomination fight in the middle of all of this as well, don't you think tim geithner would say okay? >> one thing i learned in politics, if the president of the united states asks you to do something, you usually do it. you do it enthusiastically. i think timothy geithner, i agree with what jimmy was saying, i think he knew for a long time he was leaving. they've had a long time to get their successor in place. i think it is going to be jack lew for a variety of reasons. in this fiscal cliff debate, we saw jack on the sideline and not fighting with the senators. think he was saving him for this nomination process. i think it is going to be jack. >> good to see you both. thanks, guys. >>> today's twitter question is how much control should

geithner. i think that will have a big affect on stock markets and on the country's credit rating. i think it will have less of an effect on jobs initially. >> interesting. that much on tim git neareithne departure. the rich are getting richer. the richest added $241 billion to their value. where are they finding their fortunes? >> great question. three main places where we're seeing the rich getting richer. first in emerging markets. a lot of very rapid wealth creation happening. i think that's adding a lot more billionaires to these lists. the second is the fact that real estate values, especially state side, are starting toic tick up. a lot of billionaires have a lot of real estate. and all of the major stock market indexes have been up in the past year. a trend we've been seeing and hearing about. forbes has been tracking this closely for the past year. we'll see it continue next year. we're actually getting ready to release our billionaires list in march. we'll see some newcomers this is a story that continues. >> for sure. how about the arab based al jazeera buying al gore's channel
